What's goin on everybody...
Man-o-man I wanna tell you my conference at the Chicago Black Womens Expo July 30th was just AWESOME!! Speaking on the panel for Women Who Survived the "Burning Coals" was phenominal. I met with so many other outstanding courageous women and feel truly honered and blessed to be able to share my story with them as well as the people in the audience. I felt that everyone walked away motivated and inspired. I looked out into the audience as I spoke and could see it in everyone's faces. They were all as excited to be there as we were to speak with them. My heart goes out to so many people that I know who have been able to over come their circumstances and those out there right now that are still trying. I say to you hang in there... never lose hope... and never stop believing in yourself and the heavens above. You are worthy, God loves you and I love you as well.
Can y'all tell I'm still pumped up from the conference? lol
I had a chance to meet with Doug Banks, one of my favorite radio personalities over at V103, he was just the nicest person and I signed a copy of Black Beans 'N Rice for him to read. I met his beautiful wife and kids. I had to ask his wife what the heck she was feeding Doug because he was so big! lol I was like... "gurl what 'chu feedin Doug...?" She laughed. I had a chance to meet and speak with Rudy from the station as well, crazy funny guy. lol I guess you could say the fun started for us as soon as I pulled into the parking garage because the parking lady at the booth was awesome and so helpful getting me squared away. She shared her story with me as well as her words of encouragement.
Like I said it was a great day and an even greater event! I will be hitting the road again soon as I continue to promote my new release Black Beans 'N Rice but y'all help me out on this end and be sure and pass the word on. Tell your friends, family, lovers and ex-lovers, and even cousin Pookey 'nem to get they copy of the book! (and yes I meant "they") Don't be sharing the book/passing it around especially if I signed it for you. Help a sistah out... ok?
You all take it easy be safe out there and I'll talk again soon!
